Organizing


So yes, if you looked at any of my recent posts you'll see that I've been very busy using my CTMH Wings Creative Basic papers and the January SOTM (Stamp of the Month) for various cards. So often, I order the package use a few of the papers and leave the last few pieces sitting. I'm challenging myself to use my Creative Basic paper while it's "new, fresh and fun" in as many cards and layouts as I can. I'm having fun so I hope to show off more cards with these versatile papers and YES! I broke out the new Spray Pens! If you haven't seen these yet, be sure to check out the CTMH new Idea Book (Feb 1) or the Inspirations Brochure out now for January! The sketch is from a new blog I found called Inkspirations Challenges.


Not that I mind having Scraps Left because ever since my scrap organization project last year, I use my scraps often. I have a Rubbermaid shelf that holds 3 bins. I took gallon size baggies and sorted my cardstock scraps by color family. The baggies are in the bin so it's SUPER easy to pull out, grab the baggie w/ the colors I'm looking for and use that paper. I then moved my printed paper scraps into my 12 inch boxes sorted by "Supplier". It's an easy way to grab those pieces also as I usually know what product I want for DSP to add. It's really reduced my Scraps that were sitting around because they're all easy to get to!!


The Challenge on H2H this week is to share an Organization Tip and I have to tell you, this process works AWESOME for me. I'd show you a picture but my scrap room is in disarray this week and my DH is working on enhancing my scrap closet with larger shelves and painting my room. It's my birthday present and I'm THRILLED! Don't worry, I'll be back to show it off when it's done! Supplies: CTMH Wings CB, CTMH Stamps Find Your Style, CTMH CS New England Ivy and Twilight, CTMH Spray Pens,
